Entry Details
Came upon a 1971 Pintail that had been stored outdoors for many years. Previous owner had tried unsuccessfully to repair several areas of outer hull damage. The balsa inner core flooring had become rotted due to water intrusion from the damaged outer hull. The entire fiberglass flooring was removed, balsa core replaced, new flooring put down, and all exterior fiberglass hull damage repaired. Oxidized deck and hull rubbed out and waxed to bring back original teal color. Repainted steel centerboard and built new rudder and tiller. Boat was sailed for the first time at the 2021 CreekFleet Summer Solstice Regatta and took 2nd place!
